I'm hoping to make the drive up from the eastern shore of MD, if anyone else in the area might be interested in carpooling.

Bill, this is a great idea. I'm in.
Do you expect most people to camp or stay at the hotel?It will be great to have you there, Rob. I was meaning to contact you. Feel free to bring any toys you can. :)

As for camping or hotel, I think it'll be about 50-50. Dan Henderson mentioned there were several booking into the State Park. I hope he doesn't mind me mentioning that he might be a good guy to ask about that. Perhaps a circle or row can be booked to that all are closer together. I think the State Park is the best bet for this year being that there won't be anything much going on at my place during the event and it is a little closer. I might even book a room this year!

It is really great to see such a positive response! Thanks to everyone. I've got a feeling it's going to be a fun year. I really missed everyone last year and am really looking forward to this.

Silke and I are planning on inviting a model to photostock, she has been working for several years and is very dependable and professional. We would be willing to share her with other photographers that are interested, please let me know if interested so she can put together a schedule.
I am sure she would give us a reasonable rate if she gets booked for one full day or longer, so she can set off traveling costs.

Great idea Dan. She seems to be a good model to work with, and she's in the right location too.

Booked a room for Heidi and I. We'll be arriving a day early after roaming around the UP for a few days, making sure we are fresh after a long drive.

I'm really looking forward to seeing everybody again!

At Jeff Bannow's suggestion I contacted Petosky State Park about their group campground. I was told the group campground is for use by youth groups, church groups, etc. I told them that many of us act as childish as possible, and we were all members of a religion of sorts, but I failed to convince anyone.

But Petosky State Park is still the Official Campground of Photostock 2011!

It was worth a try - thanks Dan! Eva & I will be camping there, as will Dan & Silke. It's going to be a happenin' place. :cool:

At the state park, are more people camping at the Dunes or Tannery campground? Does anyone know which of these is likely to be noisier?

Who me? I am the most quiet and shy guy that you will ever know. Well, except when I accidentally mistake red wine for grape Kool-Aid...

Anyway, given the time of year I suspect that the campground will be pretty busy, especially on the weekend and it won't make much difference. But I will bet that when 10PM rolls around, campground staff monitor the noise level for people who have overindulged on Kool-Aid.

In looking at the two campground maps,

http://www.midnrreservations.com/ParkCampMapDisplay.aspx?CID=64
it seems that the Dunes campground has fewer spaces and are spaced more widely apart, so why don't we go for that one, maybe the campsites around the bottom end of the loop, 60-69? You can make reservations here:

Right now the entire campground is open on the Photostock dates, so book early to get a prime spot!

And we just did! Eva, myself, Dan & Silke Seybold will be staying on site #63 starting on the night of the 22nd. Hope to be surrounded by Photostockers.

I've got #62, so everyone who is going to camp book around us. That is, unless you believe the awful rumors...or as he would write, "rumours," that Tom Overton is spreading about me, then you might want to find a new campground!
